Real Madrid's Gabriel Deck provided a dominant performance for Argentina against the Bahamas, scoring 37 points on 14-for-19 shooting while also grabbing 7 rebounds for 36 PIR. Additionally, Facundo Campazzo provided a double-double of 17 points and 10 assists en route to a 95-77 victory.

The match was not as successful for the Bahamian national team leader Buddy Hield. After averaging 24 points during his first three games for the team this summer, the Indiana Pacers guard only scored 10, making only 4 shots out of 11. Although he grabbed 7 rebounds and made 6 assists, Hield also committed 8 turnovers and ended the game fouling out in the middle of the fourth quarter.

Another matchup featured the Canadian national team and Panama. The game was not close from the very beginning as Kevin Pangos-led home team started the match with a dominant 33-7 first quarter and never looked back.

The new AX Armani Exchange Milan guard scored 17 points on 6-for-8 shooting (5/7 3PT), grabbed 5 rebounds, and dished out 5 assists for a team-leading 25 PIR. Only Kelly Olynyk contributed with more points, collecting 18 in just 17 minutes of play, while also having 6 rebounds and 5 assists in his account.
